[laughter] >> well, obviously they have to draw when they have a problem they have to draw from the existing employee base that affect the other operation. that is the concern and will be a concern of ours also. >> okay. let's see, you have two and a half minutes. >> they did release the information. the inspector general said so for different times and one of them was referred to the justice department for prosecution. the justice department won't prosecute. so they did exactly what -- i want all the
and more intelligence in a way that's easier to use. so making a smartphone that is aware, to some extent -- not in a human sense, but aware of its surroundings, aware of what's going on. so just today, for instance, motorola which is now owned by google is announcing a new smartphone that it says can automatically adjust its functions when it senses that it's this a moving car -- it's in a moving car, when it senses that it's in your pants pocket, you know? it'll shut down the screen and other functions to save battery because it senses it's turned down in your pocket. you can pull it out of your pocket and just by twisting your wrist it'll immediately turn the camera on even before you've unlocked the phone or pressed any button of any kind or an icon, done any swipe on the screen or anything. so those are, you know, examples of something that i think can get much bigger which is phones, tablets, wearable devices using their sensors, so gyroscopes and then new kinds of sensors that maybe can detect body heat or body function to do different things. so we have a lot of stuff going on in
snowden -- >> that's why -- >> -- a chance to respond. >> i have to say, i think it's a bad message for us to send for people who decide to take the law into their own hands they're doing a public service. >> can i think when the system has not worked. we have sued seven times to try to get the surveillance program before a proper court. we were kicked out of court. the clapper v. amnesty international where the justice department lawyer said it was a cascade of speculation when our client said we think our data has been collected by the government. and since we had no proof we'd been surveilled, we had no standing. it had not been for lack of trying, jeh johnson. >> the courts debate the law. >> and the only way we can get before the court, the only way we have standing before this court is because many snowden leaked the fact that we are clients of verizon business network. guess what? mr. snowden fixed my standing problem. and our democracy, regardless of whether or not you think he broke the law, whether he should be hauled to the fourth circuit, i think our country is better as a resu
use to get care today, and the supreme court said that was an outrageous use of federal power. seems like there's lots of examples in the history, and in our present of using the tax code to treat some people in some states differently than we do people in other state, and to use the affordable care act as a hammer, not an approach, but the stick. did you consider those things -- do you agree with my analysis of those two circumstances as they exist today, and did you consider those in the analysis that you performed? congressman, yes, we are aware of the provisions that you -- >> the stick approach opposed to the cater approach. >> as i said in the review of the legislative history, the floor debates, there's no evidence that there was any discussion of the carrot stick approach in connection with the premium tax credits. >> okay. but it is consistent with past irs practice to treat folks in some states differently than we treat folks in other states based on statute? only those with income taxes get to deduct income taxes, only those folks with state exchanges get to deduct insuran
. the national weather center that give us as much warning as you can give anybody about the tornadoes wouldn't be operating. so that's a pretty contentious issue. we'll also had the national debt ceiling sometime probably in mid-november. that creates not a government shutdown scenario but if you don't find a way to resolve it, sort of a, across the board 35% cut in all government agencies because you couldn't finance government. and, finally, the immigration issue has been very contentious issue. the senate has passed a bill. it's not likely to be a bill that the house will pass. the house has passed for smaller goes through committee, through judiciary committee. they have not yet come to the house floor, considering a couple of others. i think there might be a big immigration discussion late in the year. i think it will come after this government shutdown and hit the ceiling are dealt with, if at all. because the two sides are a part. it's still certainly in the mix for this year. with that, i can drone on and on but i would rather cut it off and start inching your questions. yes, sir. if
like we're going to have votes commencing about 9:15 which gives us, about 9:30 we will again try to get through this maybe most of our witnesses. we will then recess and return probably for questions at that point. so with that, chairman issa and myself, we usually start these hearings by saying that just generally that we have a responsibility to investigate problems with our federal government, for lack of a better term of some of those problems we call them scandals or wasteful spending, or conduct by federal agencies or employees. and this is not an opportunity to say to take on irs, but an opportunity to follow up actually on this matter. we've had some for hearings. i was given a list of hearings, and they date back, i don't know, mr., did you participate in some of those before? so this is not a new scandal or problem. it's something that we've seen as an issue for some time. unfortunately, too, you here in just a second, cite some of the issues at hand that is a result, hasn't gotten any better. unfortunately, we've heard lately a lot about phony scandals, irs and some of
. a net in which the georgian government were using for command and control. more current, more problematic, more personal for you and me, shamoon, a virus, saudi aramco, 35,000 hard drives, wiped clean. pick your enterprise ca, imagine yourself going back home where ever it is you work and imagine tomorrow 35,000 hard drives being wiped clean. you get the picture. and, frankly, although our government hasn't quite announced a kid, i think you and i know that's the iranians. and the iranians apparently some of you offended in the cyber domain we'll get to that in a minute, has been attacking american banks with massive distributed servers attacks. serial attacks against bank of america, wells fargo, jpmorgan chase. the list goes on. i tal talked to one officer whod on a normal weekday you and i hit their website about 15,000 times a minute to cash a check or move our money. they are getting 3 billion hits a minute at the height of the iranian attacks. so a lot more disruption. they're stealing your stuff, disrupting your network, and then finally using this domain up here to tra
interests that are preventing us from taking the action that all americans need. this is the archetypal fight between the public good, between an important public security issue and a private special interest that is defending itself, that is defending its right to pollute, that is endistinguishing its ability to compromise our atmosphere, compromise our health, compromise our great oceans and waters. this should be an easy struggle. this should be an easy struggle. but it's not, and it will be a mark of shame on this generati generation, and it will a mark of shame on this buildin buildit i have goin' the choice between the clear information from the -- that given the choice between the clear frftion from the scientists shall the clear experience of what is happening in all of our states and the power of the special interests, we ignored the first and we yielded to that power of those special interests. mr. president, i yield the floor. mr. whitehouse: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from rhode island. mr. whitehouse: i ask that the senate proceed to the immediate con
which is what is going on. this a gentleman right here. >> i appreciate you coming before us today. it takes a lot of guts. >> not much brains. >> i -- it is my feeling that we have lost the brain and have no leaders in that 5305 people running this nation. [applause] financing part of the problem, and i share your frustration, my wife is a rabid democrat. i had to endure and obama sign in my front yard. [laughter] what i understand is why we can't just come up with good ideas and agree on good ideas. this seems like we're back to being republicans are democrats. i am an american. i was not able to love for the person i wanted to in this last election because of the rules and oklahoma are so harsh. a big problem, i think it would be ed kennedy headed defund the federal government. most of the stuff we do at the local level seems to be doing okay. i have an idea that maybe if we started estate paying our federal taxes to the state and lead in the state defined, we might get something done that way. my question is. i have a lot of things, and i don't expect it listened all of them. m
of the political agenda. >> has it been used as a political football in the past? >> the one thing you can say about organizations that produce information is that they cannot make anybody use that information. they can't even make anybody interpret that information accurately. so whoever it is that might be a support your opponent of a particular policy can clearly use a cost estimate for example to say that this is a bad policy or a good policy that happened for example in the clinton health care reform in 1993 and 1994 cbo came up with an estimate that said the clinton health care reform rather than saving money which the clinton administration said would cause money that was only one of aspects that someone could look at to judge what it was a good or bad reform but the people grab on to that particular conclusion. it to their best and to see if they could kill the clinton health care reform. >> this is book tv on c-span2 with professor philip joyce of the university of maryland about his book the congressional budget office. recently with the kennedy house is the cbo used? >> it should ha
was recognizably "let us now praise famous men" it's a different genre, it wasn't a book, it was a magazine. but also the third way impressive recent to do this project it was sort of easy because you know, it wasn't like we do now to go in and try to do a lot of guesswork. there were marks on every page of 92 i think total photocopied pages, is that right? and so there were 90, 150 or so marks but they were all fairly legible. so the editing process was really nothing more than just following agee's instructions. so it was, it was, discover is not quite the right word but it was more a question of the men's could have been around, it was more of a question of what did we forget to ask about? so we remembered. >> so what you have your is the last word from james agee of what he wanted the manuscript to say? >> as a magazine article. >> yes. it's got his own handwriting on there. >> god forbid i should edit james agee. [laughter] >> thank you very much. this has been wonderful. chip simone, i want to thank you so much for this. and hugh davis and john summers. i'm hank klibanoff. it's been o
packing houses and meat cutting places you represent. tell us about that. >> i'm with local cw222 from northwest iowa. we have a packing house in cherokee, iowa, and dakota city, nebraska. too-- together, that's roughly close to 5,000 employee, and 75% of them are latino. >> 75%? >> yes, yes, so 75% of the membership who we represent are latino and immigrant workers, so, again, good morning, ladies and gentlemen, of the panel and audience, senators, i'm honored to be here to talk about an issue that affects us all. these united states, our united states, have been the place of dreams and opportunities for immigrants for years. this dream lives today. the opportunity to achieve this dream has become tarnished by political rhetoric and partisan politics. comprehensive immigration reform must create a path to citizenship. there are as many as 1 # 1 million immigrants aspiring to be americans living and contributing in the united states today. this path must be streamlined for dreamers brought here as young children with immigrant parents. these people are part of the drive and the will of
everybody takes to heart, i think that i want to thank you very much for spending your time with us this afternoon. >> thank you. that's great. [applause] >> and i also want to thank all of you for coming, and to let you know we'll be singing you a link to the video if you want to relive the wonderful afternoon. also, that are complementary copies of the atlantic. i want to echo what elizabeth said. the article on how old you can be to have a child is really, really interesting. but there's a lot of other interesting pieces in the magazine, so take a look. thank you very much. >> thank you [inaudible conversations] >> one, i think they serve as a window on the path to what was going on with american women at any given time in our past history. so if you look at a first lady's life, you get a view of what's going on with women. the other thing that i find very interesting from a women's history standpoint is that it's the conjunction of the public and private lives of women, which is a topic that many scholars are very interested in. and i think first lady's just epitomizes the comin
. those of us convinced that they would do a terrible job need to say so, but candy, she's the one i would have put money on would be the objective journalist as a moderator, and she was the one who saved barack obama. in what would have been a cataclysmic second debate defeat. when barack obama announced, declared that on the night of the benghazi attacks, he denounced the attack as being a terrorist attack. remember the picture from mitt romney looking at him in disbelief as if to say i can't believe you just made me the next president of the united states? in came candy saying, no, no, no, mitt romney, that's not true. the president's right to which barack obama looked at her with the same startled look, and said, say it again. i want everybody to hear that. he couldn't believe the assist he just got from candy. he was wrong. she was wrong. mitt romney lost the golden moment in that debate. now, i'm not suggesting it is the sole reason he lost. he lost for an alphabet soup of reasons. i still keep counting them. yesterday, for mitt romney to come out and say that defunding obamacare is
the key part of our position is simply that the use of the words such exchange and the use of exchange with a capital a map showing the defined term that the logical commonsense interpretation of that language is that the exchange under hhs stewardship shall remain as it would have been under state stewardship and shall be its functional equivalent and shall be subject to the same requirements and shall have the authority necessary to take such actions as are necessary to implement its functions. as the steward of such exchange our position is the secretary stands in stand in the shoes of our acts on behalf of of ed state government. this type of surrogacy were stewardship is commonplace and the law. and so that is what, that is what we feel 1321 and the statute as a whole contemplates. there is really no reason to impose this interpretation that professor adler's co-author michael canon has said would ring obama cares exchange engines to a screeching hault. >> mr. lazarus i hate to interrupt you but how much time to let because we want to receive all of your statement. >> have i overs
